...without you losing your mind


If your child is struggling with anxiety, aggression, focus, mood or learning they are not alone.

One In Five is having a hard time staying focused and struggles with transitions, sleep, mood, anxiety, or anger; kids are having a harder time learning and communicating, allergies and asthma are on the rise and more kids are complaining of tummy trouble...


After Working With Hundreds Of Kids, From Classroom To Clinic, I Have Learned A Few Things You NEED TO KNOW


  1. Food is likely playing a role in your child's behaviour and pain. Most teachers, therapists, doctors and counsellors miss the impact of food because they are not trained to understand how food influences the function of the brain & body, nor do they have a way to coach you on implementing diet strategies that work - food is just not their tool. Since food impacts every tissue of the body, exploring food remains a powerful yet sorely under-utilized tool for helping your kids

  2. If you've tried making diet changes and have seen no improvements it's probably because you didn't have a roadmap of the most powerful strategies or a way to systematically track changes. When it comes to diet, there is rarely One Thing that makes the difference - we have to think of diet as a whole. And if you don't have a map to follow while you do that, you're likely to get lost and confused.

  3. If you're frustrated by even the mere thought of making diet changes and just don't think this is going to fly with your family, I encourage you to change your perspective. No parent likes to say "no" all the time and that kind of restriction-based approach can cause a rift in your family dynamic. But if you shift the conversation to one of nourishment, everything changes. Food becomes a tool for brining the family together rather than a source of conflict. Changing your family's diet does not have to (nor should it) focus on restriction.

To Help Your Child We Need To Nourish The Body To Nourish The Brain. This is a Process Called "Raising Resilience"

(learn what I mean by that and why we can do this regardless of diagnosis in the short video below)


If You Haven't Yet Incorporated A Food Strategy To Address Your Child's Physical, Behavioural or Emotional Health, Your Management Plan Has A Big Hole In It

But Feeding A Family Is Tough!

Does your life look like this?

You spend your nights sifting through all the blogs, facebook posts, books, articles and opinions to try to figure out what you should be feeding your child.

You finally free up time, energy and money to get this healthy food on the table...

...only to have your kids reject it because it’s the wrong color or they don’t like how it smells!

Back to square one.


Or Maybe It's Like This...

Your doctor told you to eliminate 7 additional foods, so along with the special diet you've already got your kids on for their allergies you're not sure what's left to give them!

So what are you supposed to do now?


You've been wondering about whether food changes will make a difference. You're a little suspicious that they might be playing a role, but you're nervous to try changing things and are not sure which changes to even start with. 

Your doctors and therapists tell you not to bother. So you feel confused and uncertain.

There's A Solution To Help You Move Forward With Confidence

To use food to help your child while keeping your sanity intact you need to surround yourself with the right support, stick to a system, and know exactly what you're looking for.

Until you do that, I guarantee you'll continue to feel overwhelmed.

Introducing the Raising Resilience Jumpstart Program For Parents

This on-line coaching program focuses on simple diet changes that make a profound difference to your child's health and behaviour. These are the same steps I have taken many families through to reduce symptoms of autism, anxiety, ADHD and aggression. In Jumpstart we stay strategic and systematic. We start simple and keep this manageable.

I'm Jess, And I'll Be Your Guide


I'm a mom of three, a holistic nutritionist, author, speaker and health coach specializing in children's nutrition. I'm also a former high school teacher.

I've been working with families for 20 years.

At our integrative healthcare clinic I spend my days helping parents find a nutrition strategy to help their kids calm down, learn better, have better sleep, have more stable moods.

We go beyond diagnosis. We use food to support the overall health of the body so that it works better.

When we do that, troubling symptoms - from skin rashes to tantrums to anxiety and inattention - start to dissolve.

It's a process I call Raising Resilience.

At home I’m a parent, like you, just trying to keep all my balls in the air and raise a healthy family.


I've Learned Something Critical That Will Reduce Your Frustration While Improving Your Results.

It's A Radically Different Approach To Improving The Happiness & Success Of Your Kids And It's What Makes Parents In This Program So Successful...

The Key Is To Focus On Nourishment

In Jumpstart you will...

  • Learn about what to add into the diet - particularly helpful foods and supplements that support growth, learning and emotional stability
  • Learn about allergies and food irritants and understand how to replace them without feeling like you're depriving your kid or having to say "no" all the time
  • Make sense of testing options that can tell you more about the underlying drivers of your child's behaviour and moods; tests for things like for food allergy, hormones, gut health and deficiencies  
  • Gain insight into what is causing your picky eater's behaviour so you can stop pulling your hair out and find mealtime peace
  • Be surrounded by supportive parents just like you who are nourishing their kids, so you don't feel so alone.
  • Access an action plan that pulls all the latest research on food and the brain into practical strategy so you can stop wasting your time searching and wondering and spend more time connecting with your kid

The Raising Resilience Jumpstart Program Will Help You Nourish Your Child So They Feel Better & Get Healthier. When We Do That Troubling Symptoms Dissolve

When We Raise Resilience, We End Up With…

  • Kids who sleep better, focus better, communicate better, learn better and have more stable moods and behaviours
  • Parents who can relax, knowing exactly what drives their kids’ symptoms and behaviours and who have a toolbox of strategies to help
  • A sigh of relief for everyone who interacts with your child… so you and your kids can relax and enjoy each other more

"This is my 7 year old son. I knew that the changes we were making were making a difference when friends and family started commenting on how happy he was.

Sometimes it's hard to really see the changes when you're so immersed in the every day of it all, but then I see this and I see how happy and rested and joyful he is on a much more regular basis.

Diet changes, supplements, consistency....these have ultimately brought peace and joy to my son like we hadn't seen in years. It's hard - but it's so, so, so worth it.

Thank you Jess for your continued support and encouragement."
